All of the Above: a novel by Shelley Pearsall
reviewed by Leila
All of the Above is based on a true story and was an enjoyable book. It is by Shelley Pearsall and it's about five urban kids who join a math club, led by their math teacher, in the effort to build the world's largest tetrahedron. The main characters include Mr.Collins, Marcel, James Harris III, Sharice, and Rhondell. They are the ones trying to build the tetrahedron. Are they going to be able to build it or will they fail and have their dreams crushed?
All of the Above was written in an unusual style. Every main character and a few others had their parts in which to talk from their own points of view. People who already love math would definitely like this book. And for those who don't, read this book and it will possibly change your view on math forever.
If you like this book, you would probably like Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass, Celeste's Harlem Renaissance by Eleanora E. Tate, and Call Me Hope by Gretchen Olsen.Posted by at July 28, 2010 12:57 PM
